New York Fashion Week had a star-studded beginning this season as some of the fashion industry’s biggest names arrived in the Big Apple for the Fendi show. Marking 25 years of the iconic Baguette created by Silvia Venturini Fendi, Kim Jones, the fashion house’s artistic director of womenswear collaborated with Marc Jacobs on a stunning collection that was “an interpretation and celebration” that is not only a wardrobe staple but also a pop culture icon.
Seated on the front row was Sarah Jessica Parker, the actor who famously said, “It’s not a bag, it’s a Baguette” as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And The City, thus forever linking the arm candy to New York, and later, collaborated with Fendi on a pink sequin version. Dressed in a neutral-toned ensemble with a pop of color courtesy of the Baguette, Jessica Parker took her place next to Kim Kardashian, who arrived in a sparkly mesh dress. The reality TV star and entrepreneur, too, has a special relationship with the fashion house following the much-loved collaboration between her shapewear brand Skims and Fendi. Supermodel power was in full force at the show, with Kate Moss giving rocker chic style a spin in a strappy dress with black boots, alongside Grace Jones, Christy Turlington, Amber Valetta, Winnie Harlow, and Imaan Hammam.
Also in attendance were friends of the fashion house and stars from the entertainment world, including Stranger Things actor Natalia Dyer, Maude Apatow from Euphoria, The Marvellous Mrs Maisel‘s Rachel Brosnahan, and Academy Award winner Naomi Watts.
